SOURCE: 99 silverado 4.3 vortec. engine turns over

put a fuel pressure gauge on it. Check my specs because I am doing this from memory but I think it has to have at least 61 psi and anything below about 55 is not enough. I once put a brand new from the dealer on my bravada. Abter it still did not start I replace the "injector spider" to the tune of 400 buck my cost for the part only to find that the brand new feul pump was not getting enough pressure. Section 4 in a haynes manual at the parts store will give you the minimum fuel pressure.

My 1998nissan sentra 4 cyl. 5 speed transwas running fine stopped at light, engine slowly died will not start tries to but backfires in engine not able to start it again

change your fuel filter and get in the habit of pouring an entire bottle of fuel injector cleaner once a month as you fill the tank , pour in the bottle before putting gas for best mixing... also pour a bottle of %70 isoprophil alcohol in the gas tank to rid of all the water at the bottom if your gas tank since condensation occurs nightly...
All this , because you said "it SLOWLY died"

I have a 1990 chevy s 10 with a 4.3 engine it starts when cold will idle a few minutes then dies as a result of not getting fuel if I pour gas down the throttle body it will restart but only run l,ong...

Could be loosing power or pulse to the injectors. I would check for power and pulse ground at the injectors and see if you are loosing one or both.

It will start run for a few seconds then die,u can pour gas in throttle body and it will run as long as your pouring gas in it,ive changed fuel filter.I checked fuel pressure and it is fine,60 psi.

Have you checked to see if the injectors are getting a signal? The best way is to hook a noid light to the injector wire harness and crank the engine.

Engine wont fire until fuel is poured in throttle body

1993 s-10 should have a 4.3 engine. Your symptoms tell me your throttle body injector is clogged, and only allows so much fuel to pass through it. Therefore, on a idle there is not enough fuel coming through to keep the engine running, or to start it. If you replace the throttle body injector your issue should cease.

I hope this information helps you, and I wish you luck on your repair.
